Does it take a village? Yes it does. This whole process has been really difficult and will continue to be difficult for a while. And what makes it easier? All y’all. My village, our village.
Everyone has been amazing and I am so incredibly thankful to each and every one of you. I truly treasure each one of you. For the meals, the gifts, help with kids, the cards, the love notes, positive vibes and prayers that we can feel, the photographs, the Facebook love, our sweet sweet babysitter, the words of encouragement, our kids teachers, and amazingly timed notes and gifts from those true cancer warriors who have walked in theses shoes or those similar to it. To all of my family and friends and acquaintances to those I haven’t met yet but are supporting in any way they can. I love each one of you and appreciate all that you are doing. Everything helps. We’ve cried more sweet tears over the kindness of you all than we’ve cried over this cancer and treatment!
Every meal that is brought helps us so much. Like more than words can express. And I cannot thank you all enough. We know how busy your days are and to take the time to send some food or love our way, means more to us than we can put into words. We are so fortunate to have so many wonderful friends and such a fantastic community family that comes together.
I am so so thankful to Jason, for honestly, doing everything. Just everything and bearing the weight of the world on his shoulders. So thankful to my mom for taking care of me and the kids, running errands, carpooling and putting up with me even when I’m in a bad mood. Yes, I’m going through the hard stuff, but it is cushioned by all y’all, and I couldn’t be more grateful.
My hope is that we can all come together and support each other continually. That we can continue to see that we are all human, we all need love and support. That everyone can cut through the drama and realize that we get one shot at this life and we need to live it with as much love and kindness and happiness as we possibly can. Yes, life is really fucking tough sometimes and sometimes it absolutely sucks. But you can (I promise you can) find the positive, just open your eyes and reach for it.
I love you all. I appreciate you all. From the bottom of my heart. Thank you.
